[PD] Patching in Linux - the "sweet spot" ...

2 questions about patching in PD in a LINUX environment:

1.) i am having a little bit of trouble making patchcord connections 
under LINUX (Debian 10) as i find the "sweet spot" (the area where the 
cursor changes and the connection can be made) quite small. feels like a 
mere 3 pixels to me, that i have to hit very precisely ...

coming from Windows i find that the "sweet spot" is much easier to grab 
there, it really feels different and much easier. As far as i know, the 
height of an object is 16 pixels, so i figure it would be safe to have 
something like 5 or 6 pixels as a "connection area" on both ends.

Anyway, i think it should be a little larger than it is right now. Or is 
it maybe again just my system that's acting strange ?

2.) just a small thing: when my cursor changes to "ready for 
connection", i am getting a ring icon on windows. on linux i get a weird 
icon that implies "action impossible". i can patch alright, but it's 
irritating. does anybody know where i could easily change this design ?

thanks for any help
